Helpful Parking Tips

Carpool+: Don't go it alone! In support of our efforts to reduce emissions and get on the slopes with ease, Keystone highly encourages guests to participate in carpooling to the resort - especially on weekends and holidays. Keystone also offers family and carpool parking (groups of 4 or more) up front in its River Run and Mountain House East parking lots, so that you can spend less time in the car and more time on snow.

Camping: Camping is not permitted at Keystone resort. This is based upon Keystones Land Use Agreement with Summit County Government. Guests who are lodging within Keystone may park their RV or campers in oversized vehicle parking area (For oversized vehicle registration please visit Keystone Condo registration). However they are not permitted to camp (sleep in the vehicle or camper overnight). There are limited areas that camping is permitted in the surrounding area.

Driving Directions from Colorado Springs

Take I-25 North then take exit 194 to merge onto CO-470 West toward Grand Junction. Follow the signs for Grand Junction/I-70 West and merge onto I-70 West. Travel west on I-70 until taking exit 205 toward Silverthorne/Dillon. At the end of the exit ramp, turn left (east) onto Highway 6. Travel 6.2 miles to Keystone Resort.

Tips for I-70 Mountain Travel

  • Avoid peak travel times if possible. If you are heading eastbound on Saturday or Sunday, plan to leave the mountains after 7 p.m. to stay out of traffic. To be safe, check the weekend and holiday Travel Forecast.



Weekend Traffic Patterns


  • Friday: Traffic volumes are moderate from approximately 3:00-7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: To beat the traffic, plan to leave the Front Range by 6:00 a.m. Traffic is consistently at its highest between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., and speeds return to normal soon after Noon.
  • Sunday: Traffic is lighter than Saturday but delays are possible in the 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. timeframe.


  • Saturday: Traffic volume is moderate to heavy between 2:00-5:00 p.m.
  • Sunday: Traffic starts to build as early as 11:30 a.m. The peak of the traffic occurs between 3:00-6:00 and drops off soon after 8:00 pm. To avoid the jam, stay at the Resort for dinner, or spend Sunday night and head back to work or school Monday morning.

*Please note: this travel forecast is based on historical traffic data. Weather, road conditions and accidents are impossible to predict and can have significant impacts on I-70 travel.

Colorado’s Traction Law is in effect Sept 1-May 31, regardless of current weather conditions. Learn if your tires meet the Traction Law specifications here.

The Mountain Express Lanes are open on the weekends and holidays to provide a faster and more reliable travel time between Denver and the mountains. Get the Express Toll pass to pay the posted toll rate. Those without a pass will be billed the posted rate plus a service charge. Order the pass at

Holiday Weekends: When a national holiday falls on a Monday, you can count on Monday afternoon eastbound traffic similar to a typical Sunday pattern, but with potentially more volume.

Metering: Traffic metering goes into effect during very high-volume times at the Eisenhower Johnson Tunnel on the eastbound approach. Metering controls the flow of traffic eastbound towards the Eisenhower Tunnel so traffic does not back up in the tunnel, causing potential safety issues.
